Sha says:  We got engaged on 9th March 2012 in Xi’an, China. We had an engagement celebration with both families and it was the first time that our two families had met. We all enjoyed the day!

We haven’t decided on the exact wedding day and location yet. We are planning for Spring next year and we will register in Norway, and have the ceremony in China.

We were classmates, and we met in Beijing.  It was the true love right from the start! I know he is Mr Right! Our first date was in a beautiful park not far away from our University in Preston.

We chose to have an engagement shoot to record our memories of living in the UK at this special time.  We will eventually move to another country.

We enjoyed the engagement shoot very much. It was a great experience and we got a chance to see more of the Lake District. We will use the images at the reception on our wedding day.
